Regular Aamaal in Shabaan (Shaʿbān)

Description:

It is recommended to say the following imploration for forgiveness seventy times each day in Sha’ban:

اَسْتغْفِرُ اﷲ وَ اَسْئَلُہُ التَّوْبَۃَ

Translation:

I seek forgiveness of Allah, and, repentant, beseech Him. 

Reference: Mafatih al Jinnan P 311

Description:

It is recommended to recite the following imploration Too for forgiveness seventy times each day in Sha’ban:

اَسْتغْفِرُ ﷲِ الَّذِیْ لَآ اِلٰہَ اِلَّا ھُوَ الرَّحْمٰنُ الرَّحِیْمُ الْحَیُّ الْقَیُّوْمُ وَ اَتُوْبُ اِلَیْہِ

Translation:

I seek forgiveness of Allah who is “There is no God save  He”, the Beneficent, the Merciful, the Ever living, the Eternal, and I turn repentant to Him

Explanation / Details::

According to narrations, the best words that are advisably said in Sha’ban are the implorations for the forgiveness of Almighty Allah (i.e. istighfar). Hence, to implore for Almighty Allah’s forgiveness seventy times a day in Sha’ban is equal to imploring for His forgiveness seventy thousand times a day in the other months.

Description:

It is recommended to repeat the following litany one thousand times in Sha’ban:

لَآ اِلٰہَ اِلَّا اﷲُ وَلَا نَعْبُدُ اِلَّا اِیَّاہُ مُخْلِصِیْنَ لَہُ الدِّیْنَ وَلَوْ کَرِہَ الْمُشْرِکِیْنَ

Translation:

There is no god save Allah. We do not worship save “He” alone, making religion pure for Him (only), however much the disbelievers be averse.

Explanation / Details::

This devout rite brings about a great reward. The reward of one who repeats this litany in Sha’ban is that one is awarded the reward of serving (Almighty Allah) for one thousand years.

Translation:

O Allah, (please do) send blessings to Muhammad and the Household of Muhammad; the tree of Prophethood, the trustees of the (Divine) Mission, the frequently visited by the angels, the core of knowledge, and the Household of the Divine Revelation. O Allah, (please do) send blessings to Muhammad and the Household of Muhammad, the sailing ships through the abysmal waves. He who embarks on will be saved but he who abandons will be drowned. He who precedes them will miss the Right Path and he who misses them will lose, but he who adheres to them will win. O Allah, (please do) send blessings to Muhammad and the Household of Muhammad, the impregnable shelter, the succorers of the helpless, distressed ones, the haven of the fugitives, and the asylum of those who seek refuge. O Allah, (please do) send blessings to Muhammad and the Household of Muhammad so many blessings that please them and settle all (our) duties towards Muhammad and the Household of Muhammad, by Your might and power, O Lord of the worlds! O Allah, (please do) send blessings to Muhammad and the Household of Muhammad, the pure, pious, and righteous whose rights have been made incumbent upon us by You and the obedience to whom and whose (divinely ordained) leadership have been (also) deemed obligatory upon us by You. O Allah, (please do) send blessings to Muhammad and the Household of Muhammad, fill my heart with obedience to You, do not disgrace me due to my acts of disobedience to You, and grant me the feeling of sympathy towards those whom You have decided to straiten their sustenance by means of Your favors that You have decided to make expansive for me and by means of that with which You have covered me out of Your fairness. Make me live under Your shade. This is the month of Your Prophet and the Master of Your Messengers. It is Sha`ban, which You have encompassed with Your mercy and pleasure and on which the Messenger of Allah, peace and blessings be upon him and his Household, used to observe fasting painstakingly and used to spend it with acts of worship on all of its days and nights on account of Your honoring and dignifying this month, up to his death. O Allah, (please do) help us follow the example of him (i.e. the Holy Prophet as regards the honoring of this month) and help us attain his intercession for us. O Allah, (please do) decide him as my interceder (before You) whose intercession for me is acceptable and as my clear path toward You, and make me follow him until I meet You on the Resurrection Day in such a state that You are pleased with me having overlooked my sins and confer upon me with Your mercy and good pleasure settleing me in the Eternal Abode and the Place of the Righteous.
